Summer Fair Sunday 26th June

This weekend is Fordhall Community Land Initiative’s biggest event of the year. We are celebrating 5 years in Community Ownership at our North Shropshire organic farm, near Market Drayton, and we are all very excited!

There will be loads of stalls at our Farmers’ Market and activities galore for all the family!

Have a go at fishing on the River Tern or climbing a big old oak tree.  The RAF will be here with a Squirrel Helicopter and keeping things airborne, you can have a go in a beautiful hot air balloon!

 Back down on the ground, we have donkey rides and tractor rides, face painting, sheep shearing, welly wanging, sack races and live music.

 There will also be the chance to name our brand new bull – so lots to entertain the children...and grandparents!

Ben will be serving delicious hot food and we will be providing organic and local refreshments and cakes in and out of our stunning new tearoom!
So come down, bring your friends and join in the fun for our 5th birthday party!

Sunday 26th June, 10am - 4pm, £3 per person.

Hi Charlotte,
Just got the latest Annual Review - Pwah - You guys are the best. I am so proud to have had a small part in your early work. I cannot believe the stock levels you now have at the farm and the plans for the bakery would make Arthur think he has been reborn. Hope you are all still coping well with what must be an exhauasting work schedule. We are with you always in spirit and hope we can visit again soon
